Microsoft Workshop: Maximize Your IoT Product Data Using the Cloud

13 January 2016 09:30

We are extremely excited to announce our next Hardware Academy Workshop this time in partnership with Microsoft! For this half day workshop we will be bringing you right up to speed with Microsoft Azure; the platform of choice for hardware and software developers looking to store, process, retrieve, crunch, analyse, display, model, and generally manage large volumes of data.

Not only will you learn in detail how to start using the Azure platform, you’ll also have the chance to speak one to one with the technical experts from the Microsoft team, asking questions and debating subjects that arise from the technology discussions.

In this tight-knit and personal workshop, you’ll have the opportunity to get great insights on how to maximise your IoT product data with a perfect mix of educational talks and hands-on experience. During the workshop you’ll be able to enjoy provided refreshments whilst you network with like-minded hardware enthusiasts and the Microsoft team.

The key technologies being covered include:

– Microsoft Azure IoT Suite

– Microsoft Cortana Analytics Suite and Machine Learning
